Tarzan Swings Into Three Epic Adventures on Special-Edition Blu-ray & DVD, Aug. 23rd

Cinedigm announced today that The Film Detective (TFD), the classic film restoration and streaming company, will release The Tarzan Vault Collection, featuring Tarzan of the Apes (1918), The Adventures of Tarzan (1921) and The New Adventures of Tarzan II (the complete version of the 1935 film serial) on special edition Blu-ray and DVD, Aug. 23.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' hero has thrilled movie audiences since the days of the silent screen. Tarzan of the Apes, with the brawny Elmo Lincoln in the leading role, introduced the character to movie audiences and told the traditional tale of how the orphaned heir to the Greystoke fortune became lord of the jungle. Lincoln was so impressive in the role that he returned three years later in Adventures of Tarzan, this time to rescue his beloved Jane from the clutches of the evil Queen La.

By 1935, the public was still fascinated by the nobleman who apes had raised, now played by Herman Brix (aka Bruce Bennet) in The New Adventures of Tarzan, Brix, a star shot putter at the 1928 Olympics, needed all of his muscle to portray Tarzan in this tale of missing jewels and explosives powerful enough to destroy the world.

Here is your chance to sit back and enjoy a Tarzan trilogy guaranteed to leave you spellbound!

Coming to Blu-ray and DVD, The Tarzan Vault Collection is a highly anticipated special-edition release from TFD, presented from original 35mm archival elements.

HALLOWEEN ENDS Trailer

This is Laurie Strode’s last stand.  After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches its epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before. Only one of them will survive.  Icon Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the last time as Laurie Strode, horror’s first “final girl” and the role that launched Curtis’ career. Curtis has portrayed Laurie for more than four decades now, one of the longest actor-character pairings in cinema history. When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman.  Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir.
